|Lillie's in the Theater District|
Another just-opened eatery in the area has taken over the West Side Sushi space on Ninth Avenue. This strip has about a bajillion Thai joints, and now it has a bajillion and one with the opening of VIV. The space sets itself apart with a futuristic design featuring neon lights and a stylish bar area that looks out onto the street through a picture window, but you'll still find all of the standards on the menu. Think spring rolls, pad-see eiw, et al, with reasonable prices across the boards (check out that $7.95 . If you're into vibe dining, Thai style, visit the restaurant at 717 Ninth Ave and check out its website here (212-581-5999).
